Pittsburgh Cultural Trust Presents Public Record A Pittsburgh Biennial Exhibition
Sept. 26 – Nov. 9, 2014  |  SPACE - 812 Liberty Ave and 707 Penn Gallery - 707 Penn Ave

Pittsburgh Biennial Public Record
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust announces the presentation of Public Record,a Pittsburgh Biennial exhibition, on view September 26–November 9, 2014, at the Trust’s SPACE and 707 Penn galleries. An opening reception takes place September 26, 2014, from 5:30 to 9 p.m., during the Trust’s quarterly and 10th annual Gallery Crawl throughout the Cultural District.

Public Record—a nine-person multimedia exhibition in celebration of Pittsburgh artists—explores love, absurdity, surveillance, gaming, and identity. Artists include Rafael Abreu-Canedo, Matthew Biederman (with Aljosa Abrahamsberg, Marko Peljhan, and Brian Springer), Carolina Loyola-Garcia, Paolo Pedercini, Caroline Record, Paul Rosenblatt, Martha Rial, Susanne Slavick, and Two Girls Working.
Among the Biennial installations is Paul Rosenblatt’s Well Played: Paul’s Vinyl Records—held in 707 Penn Gallery—which features recordings of live and electronic performances that were manufactured, marketed, sold, collected, and (well) played before the artist collected them again. Visitors to the gallery can dig through the artist’s collection and play records, and an interactive component to the exhibition allows visitors to virtually “dig-in” to the collection and play records online.

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra to Honor Lorin Maazel During First Subscription Weekend of 2014-2015 BNY Mellon Grand Classics Season
Sept. 19-21, 2014  |  Heinz Hall
The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will honor its former music director, Lorin Maazel, who passed away on July 13, 2014, during the first subscription weekend of its BNY Mellon Grand Classics season on Sept. 19-21 at Heinz Hall.  “Two Trips” features current Pittsburgh Symphony Music Director Manfred Honeck and welcomes pianist Valentina Lisitsa as guest artist. All three concerts of the weekend will feature the orchestra performing Suite No. 3: Air by Johann Sebastian Bach in Maazel’s honor. There also will be an archival display of photos, audio, video and other mementos of Maazel’s time with the Pittsburgh Symphony in the Grand Tier Lobby. The archival exhibit will remain on display through the third subscription weekend of the BNY Mellon Grand Classics season.

“There can be no doubt that Maestro Lorin Maazel had a significant impact on the musical life of Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and the music world as a whole. I, myself, played many times under his baton and was struck by his prodigious talent and quest for perfection,” said Maestro Honeck. “He left behind a core of musical leaders that still define the Pittsburgh Symphony today and an incredible standard of playing. As one of his successors, I am deeply indebted to him for creating the ideal culture of musicians and the music-making exemplified in this orchestra.”

Pittsburgh Cultural Trust Presents Second/Second A Sound and Light Exhibition by Finnbogi Petursson

The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust announces the opening of SECOND/SECOND by Icelandic artist Finnbogi Pétursson. The exhibition is on view September 26–December 31, 2014, at the Trust’s Wood Street Galleries. An opening reception takes place Friday, September 26, 2014, from 5:30 to 9 p.m., during the Trust’s quarterly and 10th annual Gallery Crawl throughout the Cultural District.  The artist’s first U.S. solo exhibition includes two light and sound installations, the recent works Teslatune (2014) and a U.S. premiere water installation.  “Wood Street Galleries welcomes the return of Iceland’s Finnbogi Pétursson in SECOND/SECOND,” says Murray Horne, Wood Street Galleries curator. “The Icelandic landscape can be described as mesmerizing, contemplative and hypnotic; these often intangible qualities are also embodied in Pétursson’s sound-modulated water installations.”

Teslatune (2014) is dedicated to the inventor Nikola Tesla. The installation emits sound that comes from an alternating current transformer, which is led through a programmer (time-adjusted frequency equaliser and switch box) to channel the sound through eight different outputs—pipes. These eight pipes of different lengths hang from the galley’s ceiling, producing what seem to be different sounds, but the frequency is always the same, 60 Hz. The lengths of the pipes affect the pitch.  Pétursson has stated about his practice: “I am always trying to capture phenomena such as sound, water, fire, shadow and light, and channel them along new grooves, turn them into something other than what they are. These are phenomena that you feel and think about, but never see.”

2106 Penn Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15222  |  (412) 904-4509
Written By: Joanne Quinn-Smith  |  Aug. 25, 2014

When the EmpressofBiz, JoAnn Forrester and I go there alone or with friends we try to order small amounts of a lot of things to share because the food is so wonderful and the pairings are so delightfully original.

This trip:
  • Tai cat fish bites
  • lobster bisque loaded with lobster meat
  • the absolute best New England Clam Chowder
  • Ceasar salad with white anchovies and house made crostini
  • shrimp and lobster pizza with white sauce on super thin flat crust
We had plenty for Sunday morning lunch, however mine did not make it past breakfast.
Oh and the absolute best summer time dessert:  strawberries, blue berries, giant blackberries and raspberries covered with house made whipped cream--delightful.
